Action: Rally Saturday for FAMILIES BELONG TOGETHER


Stand up for families and increase the pressure on Trump by joining the “Families Belong Together” event.

June 30 (National #FamiliesBelongTogether Day of Action): We’re proudly joining the #FamiliesBelongTogether coalition led by National Domestic Workers Alliance, We Belong Together, ACLU, MoveOn, Women’s Refugee Commission, and others to organize mass mobilizations in DC and around the country.

Saturday, June 30 11:00 – 2:00pm

Capitol Campus, Legislative Steps, Olympia

Hosted by Olympia Indivisible

Host notes: This event strives to be family friendly! Please, no violence, as young children will be in attendance. Host: Victoria Kammerer Cheyney Jones

Families Belong Together opposes Donald Trump, his administration and their cruel, inhumane and unjustified separation of children from their parents along the U.S. border with Mexico and at other ports of entry into the U.S. They justify it with a “Zero Tolerance Policy.” We protest the conditions in which these children are kept. We protest the irreversible trauma that has already been perpetrated on these children and their parents for the crime of seeking a better life. This country now owes those whose lives are negatively altered by this policy – those who’ve been separated from their kids or their families forcibly – to appropriate care to reduce their trauma.

To separate immigrant families, victims of violence, hunger, and poverty, is to re-violate them. Children as young as 18 months are torn from their mother’s arms by the U.S. government. This is violent abuse. These families are victimized again by the government to which they turn for help. Families Belong Together opposes the inhumane policies of the Trump Administration, Border Patrol, and I.C.E. and calls for immediate reform.

This cause will continue until every single child seized at our border is reunited with their family. On June 30, we’re rallying in Washington, D.C., and around the country to tell Donald Trump and his administration to stop separating kids from their parents!

Trump and his administration have been systematically criminalizing immigration and immigrants, from revoking Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) to ramping up intimidating ICE tactics.

Join us on June 30 to send a clear message to Donald Trump and Republicans in Congress: Families Belong Together!
